Our food system is likely responsible for a third of global greenhouse gas emissions, yet Johns Hopkins University reports that of four thousand articles on climate change published in sixteen leading U.S. newspapers, only 1 percent had a “substantial focus” on food and agriculture.
In her recently released book, Diet for a Hot Planet, Anna Lappé says, “If we are serious about addressing climate change we have to talk about food.” Lappé will lead that conversation in Portland on Sunday April 18 where she will participate in a panel discussion, Food and the Climate Challenge: What You Can Do About It. This free event will also feature other area experts who will address how food affects our personal and environmental health and the simple steps we all can take to make a difference.

Best Portland Oregon Hotels - or where to stay when you need to lay your head down at night

If you're traveling to Portland Oregon, either to visit or in preparation for moving there, you need to have a place to stay. Many people stay out at the Portland Airport, making a common mistake in thinking that it is "centrally located to everything."No... not even close. It can easily take 45-60 minutes in normal traffic to drive the few miles from the airport to downtown. Longer if it is rush hour. The best bet…See More
